I need something for my shoulders for my son's wedding and designed the perfect little wrap to do the job!
This is one of 3 x designs planned for a ColourMart e-Book, by a group of designers from the ColourMart Lovers group on Ravelry. For those of you who are Ravelry members, the following link will take you to the appropriate page, where some of the other designs have been published.
Have just finished a mans jumper, knitted on a Passap Pinky, with the above yarn. I knitted it Italian Knit or Longstitch, the fabric is lovely and soft, bloomed up slightly when washed. So happy with this yarn, have bought another cone in dark navy.

Been swatching again!
I quite like this one and best of all is that the purple doesn't bleed. I plan to knit these 2 together! (But I hear that the dark blue and the red does bleed so be careful if you plan colourwork and swatch them up together first!)
Since weavers have started posting here, I thought, I'd join in ( you are recognized, Wayne! Lovely spring colours there)
I recently finished two scarves in black colourmart cashmere, the little red stripes are not from here, though. They are woven with very open and very close sett stripes, which maked for a very lightweight scarf!
I am a weaver livimg in Denmark, and heard your yarns recommended by other weavers
Miralda's Triangular Shawl
Lundi 17 Février 2014 16:33:03
I finally finished a project made with yarn from ColourMart and it turned out quite well, even if I say so myself. I gave it to my stepdaughter for her birthday this past November.
I purchased 150 g cone of dark red 3/5 nm Cashmere and Silk yarn in October of 2012. I used about half that yarn. I forgot to weight the shawl before I mail4ed it to Elizabeth and she is getting ready to move, so I can't ask her to weight it for me right now. I will try to get the weight later and post it here, to give you a better idea of how much I actually used.
The pattern is in the book called: Knitted Lace of Estonia: Techniques, Patterns, and Traditions by Nancy Bush. The pattern is called "Miralda's Triangular Shawl". You will find it on page 103 of that book. The pattern calls for Fingering (# 1 Super Fine) yarn and the sample shawl shown in the book was made with Roving 100% Polworth 2-Ply Fingering Weight (100% Polworth wool; 820 yds. [750m]/150g); natural sheep's gray (taupe), 1 skein, using 1 size US 6 (4mm) circular needle, 32" (80cm) or longer. I tend to knit quite loose so I had to go down to a size US 2 needle to match the gauge: 10 Stitches X 16 Rows = 2" (5 cm) in stockinette stitch before blocking. I washed and blocked my gauge swatches as instructed by the author of the pattern. The pattern also give gauge for 2 of the charts but I did not swatch the lace patterns.
I am uploading a picture of Elizabeth wearing the shawl with the dress she had in mind when she asked for a shawl. I am not sure if I can upload more than one picture per post. At first glance it doesn't look like that is possible. So if you want a close up of the shawl let me know and I'll either email it to you or post it to this forum.
